    I'm Dead Inside.

    For a while now I have felt dead inside. I don't feel love for anyone, I don't feel sad, I don't feel happy. It's absolutely empty inside of me.

    A Hotel Room In San Diego

    I hate warm weather, I hate southern California.... so far away from home. I am farther away from myself than I am from anyone else. Is this clinical depression? I don't know..... Maybe I am just dead inside. I put on La Robe a Parasol and the french pulls the blood from my...

    Missing

    I feel like a whole part of me is missing that I am not even here sometimes and honestly not part of the earth.    It isn't pleasant either.   Hollow feelings aren't what  i need right now.  i need my birthfamily!

    At Times and Moreso Now.

    Just the enveloping awareness of infinity - there is so much available to choose from and yet; still, the small ledge of the "easy way out"; keeping things as they were years ago, and returning to what I once walked away from. ...the "teeter-totter" of...

    When The Night Comes

    That's pretty much what I feel when it comes to the end of the day. I'm alone and lonely. it feels so empty, so helpless. I'm nobody. Sometimes this emptiness, it hurts so much that I really wanna scream it out loud. But what for? No one is going to listen. All I do is crying...

    How?

    How do you leave a path you have walked for a lifetime? Treading the path of loneliness and isolation for as long as you can remember. As familiar as breathing, As sure as your own heartbeat. How do you walk away from that? Is moving on always the best answer? When for a...

    It's Hard To Explain,

    Unless you've felt like this, I guess this will be hard to understand, hard to imagine, hard to feel. The emptiness inside me is something even I don't fully understand let alone know how to express in words. Emptiness is like an iron feather, a dark cloud - it feels so heavy yet...

    Disconnected

    I know where this emptiness comes from: too many years being independent, traveling around, disconnecting from people and never connecting to family. It is all nice and fine, and it is also a very safe approach, but it catches up with you sooner or later. Never having really...

    Brick By Brick

    I've lost my voice, my opinions, my feelings, and seemingly my ability to connect with others. I've had no motivation or muse to write or draw, nothing comes to mind. I try to do creative exercises but it all comes out wrong or ugly and feels so empty and meaningless. Even just...

    Something Is Missing And Always Has Been

    I cannot explain it. Perhaps it is the curse of a young mind that sought out to understand things it was not yet ready for. Or the curse of a soul hunting dark dreams. Whatever the reason, this has been part of who I am since I was young. My mind chose the path before my human...

    Nothing Inside

    I dunno...it's something that comes back to haunt me every few days - like today. It's very random. Two days ago, I was happy and cheerful and now I feel so...gloomy. It goes away when I'm around people I love and when I'm having fun, but as soon as I'm alone, as soon as my mind...

    Completely

    Everything is the same to me. Food doesn't have a taste. People can't make me smile. I don't know how to handle times like these. Nothing can make me feel. I'm completely indifferent to life. I am nothing. I have no value.

    Hole In My Soul

    I wish that as a Christian, I no longer felt like I have a hole in my soul. But I still do - after years of counselling, men's groups, self help books, etc, etc... It's like there's a hole that lets all the goodness drain back out - whenever I feel love from God, myself, loved...

    I don't know. The picture speaks for itself. It just brought on those feelings of emptiness, and emphasized all of the things that make it so meaningless. I feel nothing.
